Springboard: Eating Myself

A powerful female exploration about food, culture, body image and self-care…with a dash of South American flavour

Eating Myself is a powerful and vulnerable female exploration about food, the kitchen, and looking after oneself as a woman. 

A communal experience through cooking on stage, while digging into the performer’s deep fight around body image, self-care, and family.  

This is a show with South American flavour, that will take audiences back to their cultural roots and question how different we really are.

Director Sergio Maggiolo
